will yield a whole 
windowful of bloom 
during winter.

The pure white flowers grow so uniformly and thickly 
that it gives the effect of a sheet of sno7v. Plants perfectly 
hardy. The earliest, prettiest spring flower. The 
spreading tufts are densely clothed with neat, lively 
green leaves and covered with pure white flowers of 
the most lovely effect, conspicuous in great distance,

spiral stems, bearing an 
abundance of small, round

long, beautiful, fringy 
spirals of lovely green are 
unsurpassed. It is one of 
the easiest plants to grow,

early in open ground.

house of cockroaches, and

dogs and all animals.

ifying results.

always taken for a beautiful, large-flowering Forget-me-not, and 
for bouquets and cut flowers it is indeed superior to it. Its color 
is a deep, clear, brilliant blue with a pure white eye; one of the 
rarest and most lovely shades of that color. It blooms early and 
continues all summer. Pkt ., 200 seeds, 5 c ts*

Centaurea Imperlalls. 

Centaurea Imperials is of the easiest culture and flowers con- 
tinually from early spring until. fall. Flowers are double the size 
of Centaurea Marguerite, of various tints and colors, pure white, 
lilac, rose, purple and dark red, supported on long stems, which 
renders them very desirable for cut flowers and corsage bouquets. 
They have the same delicate odor and form as the Centaurea Mar- 
guerite. Mixed colors. Pkt., 75 seeds, 6 cts. 

Centaurea Marguerite. 

The most fragrant and longest keeping cut flower. One of the 
most valuable introductions of late years. The flowers are the 
size of a medium Carnation, freely produced on long stems, which 
renders them valuable for cutting; color pure white, pale sulphur- 
yellow and lavender. The flowers are sweet-scented, and their 
lasting quality after being cut is remarkable. The plants grow 
about eighteen inches high and are of the easiest culture; from 
spring-sown seed they commence to flower in July and continue 
until late in the autumn. The novelty is entirely distinct from all 
other Centaureas, and undoubtedly the most beautiful variety 
known. Mixed colors. Pkt., 100 seeds, 5 cts. 




Cineraria , Mybrlda. 

One of the most popular of all green-house plants, and what a 
splendid display they make when well grown. I know of no plant 
so easily grown as the Cineraria. The secret of growing well is to 
grow fast, never allowing them to receive a check, either from 
being pot bound, dryness of root, or attack of insects; the cooler 
they are kept the better. In colors they range from crimson, 
magenta, violet, purple and variegated. J^arge flowering mixed.

when the trees are coming out in leaf, and from the earliest stage 
of growth in the spring until they reach maturity in the fall the

stems are clothed with slender light green leaves. Early in the fall 
the ends of shoot9 are thickly set with small bright-scarlet flowers, 
—the bushy plants resembling balls ofjire. The plants are equally 
showy, planted singly to show the round ball-like form on all sides, 
or grown in continuous rows or hedges. Pkt., 200 seeds, 5 cts.

Shasta Daisy — One-Half Natural Size. 

THE SHASTA DAISY is one of the most marvelous productions 
in the flower line that has ever been brought to the notice of flori- 
culturists. It is the first of a new type, which has been obtained 
by first combining the free-flowering American species with the 
large, but coarse European species and the Japanese species, Nip- 

ponicum, after which rigid selection through a series of years has 
produced the present wonderfully beautiful and useful strain. Its 
first qualification is hardiness; it can be grown out of doors by 
anybody where it is not cold enough to kill oak trees. It is peren- 
nial, blooming better and more abundantly each season. It can 
be multiplied rapidly by simple division, and it is not particular 
as to soil. It blooms for several months. The flowers are ex- 
tremely large and graceful, averaging about four inches in diame- 
ter. with three or more rows of petals of the purest glistening 
whiteness, and are borne on single, strong, stiff, wiry stems, nearly 
two feet in length. The blooms when cut remain perfectly fresh 
and in good condition for two weeks or more. No other flower 
can compare with it in usefulness. Pkt., 100 seeds , 10 cts.

ease of culture with

fusely; will thrive well 
under any and all con-
